Rug—12 balls color A—Background
3 balls color B—Stripes
Cover— 4 balls color A—Background
1 ball color B—Stripes
The material above will make a rug approximately 24" x 40". The rug may be made larger by adding stitches to starting chain in groups of 7 (approx. 1⅛ inches). Each 7 sts added will increase rug length one stripe row and one background row—(approx. ¾ inch).
Row 1: With color A, ch 141, 140 sc on ch. Holding last 2 loops of final sc on hook, draw through color B. All colors are joined this way—through 2 loops of last sc. This will not be mentioned again. Cut A 2 inches from work.
Row 2: With B, ch 3, turn, work in back loop of sts, over starting ends of thread, dc in each st (140 dc). Join A through 2 loops of last dc. Cut B 3 inches from work.
Row 3: With A, ch 3, turn, work over ends, (thread over, insert hook in back loop of first dc of previous row and in loop of first sc of Row 1, draw thread through these 2 loops and work off other loops as for a dc) repeat across (140 dc). When drawing thread through first 2 loops on hook, pull up tightly to give ribbed effect.
Row 4: With A, ch 3, turn, dc in back loop of each st.
Row 5: Ch 3. Turn, (thread over, insert hook in back loop of first dc of previous row, then in loop of first dc of Row 3 take off as for a dc) repeat to end. Join B through last 2 loops, cut A 3 inches from work.
Row 6: With B, ch 3, turn, dc in back loop of 133 dc, join A, work over ends, dc in 7 dc.
Rows 7, 8 and 9: Repeat Rows 5, 4 then 5.
Row 10: Repeat Row 6 with 7 less dc in B, 7 more dc of A. Repeat Rows 5, 4, 5 and 10, 15 times. Row 70 having 21 dc in B, and balance in A.
Row 71: Repeat Row 5.
Row 72: Repeat Row 4, with last 7 dc in B,—this starts stripes on opposite side of rug; then add 7 dc in B to end of every fourth row, to make each stripe 7 dc longer than previous stripe. After Row 78, which completes first group of stripes at beginning of rows, alternate ribs in A and stripes to end of rug. Work Row 148 in B, Row 149 (last) in A.
EDGE: Work down side * (ch 2, sc between next 2 ribs) repeat to next corner, (ch 2, sc in third st across end). Repeat from *. Fasten off.
FRINGE: Wind A and B around cardboard 3 inches wide. Cut along one edge. Tie 4 strands in each ch 2 across ends, alternating colors.
The seat cover may be made larger by adding sts to starting ch in groups of 7 (approximately 1⅛"). Each group of 7 sts will add one more stripe to cover.
Row 1: With A, ch 55, 54 sc on ch.
Row 2: Join B as in Row 1 of rug and work same as in Row 2 of Rug, but make 2 dc in each of first and last 2 sc of row (increase of 2 dc at each end) with dc in each sc between the 2 end increases. Join A, cut B 2 inches from work.
Row 3: Repeat rug Row 3 to work off first dc, work another dc in second dc of Row 2, but through SAME sc of Row 1. Work dc in next 2 dc same as first 2 dc in second st of Row 1. Then make dc in each dc of Row 2 and corresponding sc of Row 1, to last 4 dc at end. Work these 4 dc same as first 4 dc of row.
Row 4: Work same as rug Row 4 except make 2 dc in st at each end of row (an inc. of 1 st at each end).
Row 5: Start row and work the inc. at each end of row same as first 2 dc in Row 3. Balance of row same as rug Row 5.
Row 6: Repeat Row 2, but finish with B, 7 sts less than previous B row, then finish in A.
Row 7: Repeat Row 3.
Repeat Rows 4, 5, 6 and 7—4 times.
Row 24: Repeat Row 4, with 14 dc in B.
Row 25: This and all uneven numbered rows are to be in A, until mentioned.
Row 26: No increases; 7 less B dc at beginning of row, finish in A.
Row 28: Inc. at each end. Work to within 7 sts of beginning of B in second rib below, finish in B.
Row 30: 2 inc. at each end, finish with B, 7 sts less than previous B rib on left of cover, finish in A.
After Row 31 in A, make 12 rows in same manner without inc., decreasing the length of B ribs on left side and increasing those on right side, 7 sts at a time.
Row 44: Dec. by skipping 1 dc at each end.
Row 46: No dec. This finishes B ribs on left hand side. After Row 47 in A, dec. 1 dc in next 12 rows at each end on every front (rib) row. Make left end of stripes extend 7 dc farther than previous.
Row 60: (Rib) Dec. 2 sts each end—to do this and make edge even, hold last 2 loops of last dc on hook, sk 2 end sts, dc in end ch-3, holding last loop on hook, thread over and through all 3 loops at once, forming a cluster.
Row 62: (Rib) With A, ch 4, turn, sk 3 sts, dc in each st across to fourth st from end, sk next 2 sts, dc in end st—work last 2 dc off as a cluster.
Row 63: Dc in each dc and corresponding lower dc across to end st, dc in end ch-3,—work last 2 dc off as cluster.
Row 64: Dec. 1 st at each end of row, sk end st, dc in ch-3,—work last 2 dc off as cluster.
Row 65: Dc in back loop of all sts across. Repeat Rows 62 and 63, 4 times, making full rib rows of A and B alternately. Fasten off.
Stretch, steam and press, until dry.
EDGE: Join A to back corner (ch 1, sc between next 2 ribs, ch 2, sc between next 2 ribs) repeat around to opposite corner. Sk 3 dc between sc across front.
Row 2: Ch 4, turn, dc in next sc (ch 1, dc in next sc) repeat around. Fasten off.
Lay cover on board, right side down, pin edge over evenly in place, steam and press.
CORD: With A, make ch long enough to thread through, or cut a strand 9 feet long, fasten one end securely, twist, fold in center, twist in opposite direction and tie ends. Draw through beading on edge of cover.
